Wear it like a crown

We had the biggest snowfall every recorded

In November over the past 111 years.

Swings.jpg

Mist rose from the ground

As the storm raged on.

Autumn leaves continued to fall

After it stopped snowing – creating

A curious mix of winter and autumn (wintumn).

It was a struggle to get down to the beach

To enjoy snowy views.

Trees turned into Japanese paintings

With graceful curved branches

Wearing the gift of snow like a crown.

    reminds me of the horrible wet snow we had last October that brought down trees because they’d not shed all their leaves and the weight was too great … beauty can be so dangerous
